Summer of Bees

Summer of Bees By Rustan Söderling & Aline Weyel
Opening on 4th September 6-9 PM

Summer of Bees is an exhibition exploring the form of the travelogue, the works presented all share a common origin in travel footage: the fragmented, non-linear documentation of journeys, unfamiliar environments and people. Instead of languishing in a forgotten folder named “summer 2020” this raw material has been extracted from their SD card sarcophaguses and repurposed into new narrative structures. They are attempts to give new form to the accidental and unscripted in a kind of reverse engineering of the post-production process.

Rustan Söderling will present his new film, The Cadaver Stone, which follows him and his guide, Duncan, as they trace an ancient Ley Line up the northern coast of Cornwall. It takes off in the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac during the recording of the 8th season of feel-good TV drama Doc Martin and ends on a rocky beach in Devon in front of the Cadaver Stone, once the scene of bloody human sacrifice.

In Aline Weyel’s work a more traditional narrative is abandoned in favor of a constantly shifting array of imagery, blurring in and out of each other. At one moment we might find ourselves in a half deserted Albanian coastal resort, then suddenly we are teleported to a Japanese fish market. Often the camera lingers on the deceitfully ordinary, hiding an eerie or humorous undercurrent, the local residents serving as incidental actors in an inexplicit drama.

Rustan Söderling is an artist from Gothenburg (SE) based in Amsterdam (NL) who works primarily with video and animation. He studied graphic design at Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam) and completed a residency at De Ateliers (Amsterdam).

Aline Weyel is an artist based in Augsburg (DE). She studied graphic design at Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam) and later a master of Artistic Research at KABK (The Hague).

Available to view every Friday to Sunday from 2pm – 6pm


Each season, Corridor Project Space focuses on one main theme that is explored through a series of exhibitions. Frozen Time attempts to explore our current societal obsession with time. Invited artists approach the theme through different angles and practices, leading us to think about solidarity, economy, and boundaries formed by and through time. Corridor Project Space is kindly supported by Gemeente Amsterdam.
